Food & Drink Pop-Ups in London 2022
Invasive Species Series at Silo
Silo founder Douglas McMaster is continually pushing the boundaries when it comes to eco-dining. His latest venture is a series focused on invasive species, which will see him carefully selecting ingredients often perceived as destructive to our native species, and modifying them into key components of his menu. The series will kick off on 5 April with a dinner centred around Japanese knotweed, with dishes transforming the weed into something beneficial – including a rhubarb-resembling jam, rippled through his homemade ice-cream. 5 April, £65pp plus £50 for wine pairings. silolondon.com

The Botanist Gin is paying homage to B Corp month with a pop-up shop, running in partnership with Good News.

Yet instead of offering products to buy, the pop-up will tell the story of the brands, giving visitors insight into what makes a B Corp business. 10A Rathbone Place, London, W1T 1HP
